The Television Academy said it has revoked an Emmy nomination for the NBC drama "This Is Us" in the contemporary costume category because the episode submitted did not meet the criteria for the category.
In order to qualify for consideration in the "outstanding contemporary costume" category, a show must spend at least 51 percent of screen time set in modern times, defined as the last 25 years.
"This Is Us" relies heavily on flashbacks to tell the story of an ensemble cast that all share the same birthday.
The academy said the episode submitted for consideration, "Moonshadow" was "predominantly period" and set in the 1970s, thus making it ineligible, Variety reported.
